I didn't think I'd like this but I do! I will definitely be making this again. Very refreshing.

I also first tried this recipe at a day spa...minus the lemons. The longer the cucumbers sit in water, the better, more flavorful the water becomes. Do not use a plastic jar; it won't work. I bought a glass sun tea cooler glass jar from Walmart which has a spout on the bottom of the jar. I sliced the cucumbers, poured filtered water on top and put it in the fridge for several days. Whenever I drink a cup of cucumber water, I put a cup of filtered water back into the jar. I think the lemon, lime, or orange addition will be tasty too but I haven't tried it, yet. The biggest key to success is using a glass jar and letting it sit for days. ENJOY!

This is great! If you have a special outfit to wear to a special event I cannot recommend this enough. Stay away from salt and sugar for 2 days and drink plenty of this and you will slim your waist line by up to 10 cm (3 inches). Thanks for posting!

This is really good. My daughter and I both loved it as did 2 of my boys. My husband didn't care for it. We live in the desert where it gets really hot and really dry. This is will be a nice alternative to plain water and iced tea.

I used 1 cucumber, 1 lemon and 1 lime in a large plastic pitcher. I cleaned the fruit and cucumber and then sliced it like it says to in the recipe and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours and I LOVE IT! Where I live it gets into triple digits during the summer and I hate the taste of most water. It tastes metalic and chemically so I have drank alot of ice tea and Crystal Light and wanted to find something I would drink this summer that was more healthier and this recipe is simple and ROCKS. I plan to check out the other recipes as well using mint, sage and rosemary.

This is one of my favorites! Have a similar recipe in my Spa Water Book...I agree about the plastic jar..Also, plastic spigots on beverage server jars are a waste of $$...

I made this water as part of our Mother's Day brunch and we just loved it! Even the guys really liked it! It adds a wonderful crispness and freshness to the water. It's also inspired us to try this with other combinations to create different flavors to the water. Thank you very much for posting this!
